Menopause Home > Generic Estrace
As all of the patents for Estrace (estradiol) have expired, several companies have chosen to manufacture a generic version of the drug. The generic versions are sold in three strengths: estradiol 0.5 mg, estradiol 1 mg, and estradiol 2 mg. The FDA has assigned them all an "AB" rating, meaning that these generics should be equivalent to the brand-name medication.
